Wow the customer service provided at this show is over the top. I ordered the green room expierence, and mentioned I was taking my gf as a Bday suprise. Every employee we encountered somehow knew it was her bday and greeted her with a happy birthday.

Evie who is one of the most genuine people you will meet lead a birthday song for my girlfriend which involved the entire crowd, and provided friendly conversation through out the night.

We met Mason outside the VIP area and after awesome conversation and becoming facebook friends he song happy birthday to my gf while playing the ukulele.

We also met Evan outside he was very attentive of my handicap and brought me a chair to sit in while we were waiting to go inside the show. He made great conversation with us and made us feel welcomed

Our server and host in the green room was Jessica. She is an amazing server and was very attentive to our needs.

Our backstage tour was provided by Gavin. He is the production manager and a very nice guy. We got to go on stage and see some of the tricks of the show.

Now to the show..... It was absolutely amazing. Elvis, MJ, Celine, the hulas, the band, and the fire dancer were just incredible. There is no lip synching in this show, and the performers sound & move just like theycharacters they are portraying.

You are stupid if you are visiting Honolulu and miss out on this show. Everything is top notch, and over the top.

Thank you to the staff of Rock-A-Hula for making my gf's bday the best shes ever had, and those are words from her own mouth.

You don't often get such outstanding customer service, with plenty of smiles, folks jumping forward to help you or answer a question, giving clear directions--and that was all before we even got in to the theater!
Very talented cast, great props and I really liked the videos especially those of Celine Dion performances.
A great value, with the $12 coupon and in such a nice theater in the elite Royal Hawaiian Center.

Great show! I saw Michael Jackson, Elvis and Celine Dion. They were all terrific. The local music and dance were fantanstic, well worth the cost.

If you want to be thoroughly entertained, enjoy some awesome feel-good music and performances then this for you. We went in March 2016 - the lineup was Elvis, Celine Dion and Michael Jackson. Boy could MJ moon dance! Dion had a powerful voice and an endearing dash of sass. Elvis anchored the whole thing with aplomb. The production values are high, with an amazing sound system and some great lighting and visuals. The supporting dancers, band and singers are a talented bunch. There was a fantastic fire dancer too (how is he not burned to a cinder by the end?). I would totally go back (I am living in Hawaii for a while). If you're thinking about whether or not to go - just go!

We did the VIP Stageside tickets. We got one extra drink ticket, which was nice. We ate dinner, which was lobster and salad, steak and salmon and some pineapple gelato with toasted macadamia nuts. It was very good. My mom is allergic to shellfish, so they were able to accommodate her with chicken instead of lobster. The servers were incredibly attentive, talkative and pleasant. They made us feel special. The show began with the Elvis impersonator, he was a little on the cheesy side and not too impressive, but okay. Next came some hula dancing and fire dancers, super awesome!!!! Celine Dion was amazing, perfect voice, excellent imitations, just fabulous! Next was Michael Jackson. He danced very well, but the singing wasn't quite up to par. However, there seemed to be a lot of problems with the sound for all three performers, so perhaps if that issue were fixed, the performers would have sung better. My favorite part was the various hula performances, the fire dancers and Celine Dion.

Thank you for sharing your review! We are certainly happy to hear our servers did a great job on serving both you and your mom. And as for the show, we thank you for providing wonderful comments regardless of the sound issue. We will be sure to bring this to attention to our production manager to ensure this problem does not arise again. Again, we appreciate you taking the time to write us a review, and we hope you have a wonderful stay in Hawaii!
